RSI launches new online slot tournament in Michigan through its BetRivers brand

Online casino and sports betting company Rush Street Interactive is taking slot tournaments “to a whole new level” with the launch of the BetRivers Michigan Million Online Slot Tournament.

BetRivers Michigan Million players will have the opportunity to play a slot game, earn tournament points and participate in a  real-time leaderboard. With every successful spin, players will see their username climb up the leaderboard and hopefully into a qualifying position for the next round of tournament play. 

To qualify for their chance to win $1 million in bonus money, players in Michigan can visit from April 1 to April 30. Ten finalists will then play the Cash Machine slot game during a live online event for their shot at a $100.000 bonus money grand prize. 

Richard Schwartz, CEO of RSI, which operates BetRivers, commented: “BetRivers is known for bringing first-of-its-kind online casino experiences to our customers and we couldn’t be more excited to launch Michigan’s most exciting online slot tournament ever.”

With BetRivers Michigan Million, you get all the excitement of a real-world slot tournament, and the chance to win part of $1 million in guaranteed bonus money, from the comfort of home,” he added.

The tournament is open to players 21 years of age or older who are physically present in Michigan during the promotion period. 

The tournament will consist of three rounds including the qualifying one, where players make a single deposit of $50+ using the code “million” into their account. Eligible players will be automatically awarded 100 Tournament Spins that can be used anytime until April 30. The top 400 players on the Tournament Leaderboard at the end of the round will move on to the Semi-Final Round. 

The qualified players in the Semi-Final will receive 200 Tournament Spins to be used May 5-6. The top 10 players on the Tournament Leaderboard at the end of the round will move on to the Final Round. Each semi-finalist not moving on to the next round will receive $1,500 in bonus money. 

The top 10 finalists will face off during a live 10-minute online event on Monday, May 15, 2023. Each player will have unlimited spins. The player at the top of the Tournament Leaderboard at the end of the round will win the $100,000 bonus money grand prize. The nine runner-ups will each win $35,000 in bonus money. 

John Mason, Detroit radio host and public address announcer for the Detroit Pistons, joins the BetRivers team to bring the Michigan Million to life for local players. When BetRivers first launched in Michigan, Mason was the first person to place a legal bet on 

Players in Michigan have never seen a slot tournament like this before,” Mason said. “I’ve been connected to the brand since the launch and I am thrilled to be part of the BetRivers Michigan Million Online Slot Tournament. I can’t wait to see 400 Michiganders win their share of the $1 million bonus money prize pool.”
